Dougie B was at the courthouse for a hearing on a previous case.
Dougie B, a Bronx drill rapper, was among a group of guys arrested Thursday after a shot was fired across the street from Bronx Supreme Court, according to his attorney.
The rapper was arrested only one day after recording a music video with Cardi B in the Boogie Down. Just before 1 p.m., court officers and Daily News reporters heard a gun fired near the E. 161st St. parking lot as lawyers and numerous court personnel were about to leave for lunch.
According to a court official, cops ran down the street and arrested “many persons.” At least four individuals were handcuffed and hauled away. Dougie B was among those arrested, according to attorney Dawn Florio. After a group of males started fighting near the parking lot, the gunshot happened. Before a guy in black took out a pistol and fired a shot, one group started pursuing the other. The event was seen by a news reporter.
The cause of the incident is unknown.
